Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor

It is being used in conjunction with NCM and UDT to manage over 3000 network devices in the company and to monitor and backup all devices.
  • Config management
  • Network monitoring
  • Change control
  • Quicker polling
  • More polling options
  • More info on less prolific devices
We have been able to see the things we missed.
We mainly use canned alerts so far.
  • Use to find choke points
  • Helps to focus attention on specific devices
Helps tie it all into one package.
Allows for monitoring of Non-Cisco devices and is cheaper.
Well suited for monitoring a large number of devices.
